We’re always looking for new ways and places to bring jazz and improvisation to audiences. In October northern line artist Maja Bugge will be improvising on her ‘Cello inside the longest, highest canal tunnel in Britain which is to be found in Marsden, West Yorkshire. We made a short film when we went to recce the tunnel to see if a performance was possible.
This project is a partnership between Marsden Jazz Festival, Jazz North and Canal & River Trust and the result will be to put on a concert in the Standedge Canal Tunnel in Marsden. The audience will enter the tunnel by boat to listen to improvised music by Norwegian cellist Maja Bugge, who will play in the rich tunnel acoustic from one of the adit passages connecting the canal tunnel with the disused single-track railway tunnel.
